The small library in my home town held many fascinations for me. One in particular was the Bobbsey Twin Mysteries. I devoured each book.
When my children were young, we began collecting the Bobbsey Twin mysteries. We would often read a chapter or two as bed time stories. I became more active online and in a literary discussion someone referred to me as Bobbseyfan. The username stuck.

Born and raised in the small farming community of Benjamin, Utah, I am still very proud Benjamin has no stoplights. Close enough for the country life, and near enough a larger town to provide the best of both worlds.
I was fascinated with the stories my grandmothers would tell of their parents. Both were widowed by the time I was 5. I was blessed to spend a great deal of time with both wonderful women as I grew up.
A change in the Young Woman Personal Progress happened just after I became a Beehive. One of my Personal Project goals was to organize my personal family history. I have been active in Family History for much of my life after that point.
